My wallet is full of cards from various establishments with stamps on them hoping to get something for free down the road. What happens is, I end up leaving the cards from one wallet to another that I just get a new card, so I could have several going at the same time for the same place.
Last year, I heard about the My Coke Rewards program and didn't really get it until a couple of months ago. I go through so many 12-packs of diet coke and now I keep the rip off tab with the code stamped in it. Each 12-pack is worth 10 points. You can log in 120 points a week so it might take a while, but since February, I have redeemed points for Oprah Magazine and Entertainment Weekly. It's all about the magazines for me.
Recently, I posted about G.I.V.E. Day, a corporate volunteer day that Royal Caribbean employees participate in. We had tons of Coca Cola products donated and guess who was scurrying through the recycle garbage scooping up bottle caps? That's right, me..each cap is worth 3 points. I check our recycle bins at work every afternoon when everyone is gone. I know the cafeteria people think I am C-R-A-Z-Y, but I don't care.
